In 1939 Poland, Antonina Zabinska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned, and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist. Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance, and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

> The Zookeeper’s Wife will be screened from 4 May in the Louis Hartlooper Complex.
